In 2010 they had all kinds of items disappearing and ankama officially said "We are aware of the issue and working on a solution to resolve it." They thought it was a database bug. turns out it was some random guy named elconru which learned ankama didn't validate your identity when you select a character from the character select screen and he was robbing everyone blind. You could get a character's ID just by them walking by you or having their haven bag up. We who reported the bug got chewed out for tampering and testing packets and ankama told everyone they successfully resolved the issue.

Besides finding several item duplication glitches early on, the inventory still has the same issues. If you move an item out of bounds it will disappear forever eg slot 31 of a 30 slot bag or whatever. If you move an item with a slot that already has an item without specifying to swap it will also eat it. It wouldn't surprise me though if someone found a glitch like turning a sidekick into an item using someone else's sidekick ID. I don't have any sidekicks to test different theft methods but that's what I would bet money is happening.

This issue has been archived and is no longer important. They are very aware of this issue. As a temporary solution please buy new items.

+ %10 harvesting bonus items don't work Menthol, Chewing bark, *. None of them harvest any faster. I timed it. It always takes 5 seconds for harvest to complete, 10 for trees.

Oh yeah I forgot this is ankama it's pointless to report bugs. This was already reported a year ago

and reports on the french side go to 2012 on it.

Sabi, the major part of our community wasn't ever asking for f2p. Clever people are clearly understanding why should they pay money for a good product. Only stupi- cough, not very smart people were creating those endless "Wakfu should be f2p QQ!!!!" threads. Add Quote Here
lol. That's not how it works buddy. You were competing with wakfu asia server. With your wallets. Wakfu asia is giving them more money and you guys are slacking on the whole open your wallets bit. Your actual opinions on the forum are irrelevant.

Multiclient to win is a lot better than pay to win. I mean even if you could pay for 20% strength advantage or whatever it's nothing compared to another player. [Text removed]

THIS GUNNA BE AWESOME MAYNE. For anyone who lost items it looks even less likely your getting them back cause er'ones about to ticket the heck out of the ticket system.

tl;dr Wakfu tried a massive advertising campaign during the last few months and their retention rates are poor because people who tried the game wouldn't sub. Wakfu asia has had a strong population because the game is free. They rather have a game with a strong population and a few people paying for advantage than a dead game with a few antisocial people who are willing to pay.

+ More People (but this is a big plus)
- Bots
- Gold sellers
- Pay for advantage
- Even less customer service as there will be more players

People who try and play it in the long term will be disappointed

TL;DR - Micro-transactions will net more profit than a sub with current pricing, and paying Ankama for kama is better than paying a random scammer for the right to write a whiny e-mail to the devs trying to get your account back.

So that's why free to play is so restricted. Square Enix wants a monopoly on the kama selling business. Even though they know they're making it less likely people will subscribe the up side is the ones that do will buy their kamas from the only gold seller.

Free to play is a typo. It should be Free to pay. Understandable human error. It was never intended to have an enjoyable free to play.

If you run out of fun you can buy more fun from the item shop.

Just buy stuff in the item shop and sell them for lots of kamas. That's what everyone else is doing.

=O...

french don't auto renew subs. Or at least if they do you're going to have a hell of a time trying to get their support team to help you. Parle vous francais?

There's a lot of games like wakfu

The game launched and no one could connect.
Everyone sends a support ticket.
The game isn't giving people the elemental tokens they bought.
Everyone sends a support ticket.
Some people can't pay for the game or ogrines.
Everyone sends a support ticket.
The people that did pay sometimes didn't get what they paid for.
Everyone sends a support ticket
There's no way to cancel in account options. It will charge you at the end of your subscription.
Everyone sends a support ticket.
No one received beta event equips and game title or eradicator stuff yet so people are curious.
Everyone sends a support ticket.
No one gets a response in multiple days so they think their ticket didn't get processed.
Everyone sends a support ticket.
Multiple days have passed and they're not getting solutions.
Everyone sends a support ticket.
The gremlin ate my tofu.
Everyone sends a support ticket.

You can see how early issues cause snowballs. If release hadn't been poopoo and there wasn't so many thing to complain about, normal tickets would be processed expediently. They didn't count on ankama being ankama though.
